Abstract : Information is often considered as the third basic resource, in addition to matter and energy. Although data processing is just a segment of the whole information-related technology, its impact is growing both in industrialized and developing countries. In countries which manufacture and export hardware and software products, data processing contributes directly to the nations' GNP, in other countries it can indirectly support agricultural and industrial production. It is in the interest of all governments to understand what informatics technology, in general, and data processing in particular, can do for the country and to make well-conceived measures to promote its appropriate national development.
